Everything Firebird put together went off without any issues. If there was supposed to be a driver, he was there. If there was supposed to be a guide, she was there. The two city guides were great. One stayed with us longer because while the tour was over, we both wanted to do the same hike so she led the way. It worked out really well. The other went a little “off tour” on the Oslo part and also, it was great. We went up to the big ski jump and got to see panoramic views of the city. All hotels were very nice, comfortable and the staff was good. We walked and walked so the exercise was exactly what we were after. Flam was beautiful, very glad we did the steam train. Also the ferry to Bergen worked out well – plus we took the last one for the season, so our timing was great. We had planned to kayak and do the extra cable car trip in Bergen but that was the day with rain. That was our only weather issue, plus we couldn’t find kayaking in Bergen, but that ended up not mattering. The weather really was quite good compared to what we expected. As far as logistics – Firebird was great and I would recommend them to anyone. We could have probably arranged our own transportation etc, but given how much time it would have taken compared to the ease of the tour package, I would do the tour package again in a heartbeat! Thanks again for your excellent work!
